Brief Description 

    

Rizalof.CN is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files.

 

It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:

  • It uses techniques included in its code to hide itself while it is active.

 

Rizalof.CN uses the following propagation or distribution methods:

  • Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
  • Via Internet, exploiting remote vulnerabilities: attacking random IP addresses, in which it tries to insert a copy of itself by exploiting one or more vulnerabilities.
